Industrial Applications - Elevator Pit Clean-up

The Problem: Over time, material had backed up at the lower conveyor head of a limestone crushing operation. Traditional bucket and shovel cleaning was difficult because access to this area was limited, and material had become wet as the pit was not well protected from the elements.

Elevator Pit Clean-up

Elevator Pit Clean-up

The Flex Services Solution: Tight access areas are very common for our type of work. Because the working end of our vacuum hose comes off, telescoping boom accessibility into this pit area was handled very easily. The high vacuum created by our blower (28” hg @ 5800cfm) pulled the sludge from beneath the conveyor and out of the ‘nooks and crannies’ at the bottom of the pit. We also had no problem handling the pockets of very dry and fine lime dust we encountered, due to our trucks bag-house filtration system. Industrial environments with difficult access, confined entry and nasty material are (unfortunately) common situations for FLEX Services.
